  • Flowers have been very lucky in the world of art. Those who have used them as inspiration for painting, drawing or decoration have clearly enjoyed their subject, thus creating a wealth of floral art which is relaxed, objective and joyous. This book brings together the best of floral art in the British Museum. Poems and extracts from authors of different cultures illuminate a range of flowers and themes. Included are quotes from the Bible, Japanese haiku, poetry from China and Egypt and even an Aztec poem about the much-loved sunflower. A wealth of artists are illustrated including Mrs Delany, Durer, Jacques le Moyne des Morgues and Hubert Robert. The result is a giftbook to enthuse, inspire and delight those with a love of flowers.
